Politics Goes to Real Dogs in Fun New Book

Red Dog / Blue Dog

People Politics

Tonight, Americans will watch another Presidential Debate.  Spin doctors will judge through the long, dark night which candidate is top dog or underdog. Citizen punditry will dog Facebook and Twitter feeds with renewed fury. All will be asking, “Can this dog hunt?”

As a nation, our political appetites are insatiable. And now the dogs have joined the mix in a funny new book called Red Dog/Blue Dog: When Pooches Get Political (affiliate link) by Chuck Sambuchinol. 

Dog Politics

Red Dog / Blue DogRed Dog/Blue Dog proves, once and for all, that some tails wag to the left and others to the right.

With 140 full-color photos of opinionated pooches accompanied by clever captions from the dogs themselves, this amusing book will add some much-needed levity to politics— whatever side of the political spectrum you are on.

Arriving in time for the 2012 election season and Presidential debates, this book provides humorous levity in the heart of a never-ending public debate.

Order your copy of Red Dog/Blue Dog: When Pooches Get Political on Amazon.com (affiliate link). A portion of proceeds will be donated to no-kill shelters / rescue groups around the country. So buy this gem, featured by PoliticalWire and The Huffington Post, for your favorite armchair politicians, 2-leggers and 4-leggers alike.

What’s Inside

I’d like to believe that my dogs are independent (and speak with British accents) but, clearly, a dog’s political perspective isn’t so cut and dried. Take these humorously stereotypical positions from the book’s balanced spreads of red vs. blue pooches:

Red Dog / Blue Dog - Spread 1

Red Dog relishes pooping on the New York Times.
Blue Dog loves his new e-reader because he can get all of his liberal media in one place. 

Red Dog / Blue Dog - Spread 2

Red Dog would like to know why these flags were made in China.
Blue Dog would like to know if this dog bone is organic and fair-trade. 

Red Dog / Blue Dog - Spread 3

Red Dog would like to see your long-form birth certificate.
Blue Dog thinks your flat tax plan is preposterous. 

Voiceless political pets are voiceless no more, thanks to Chuck and his army of internet followers with politicized dog pictures.

Disclosure: A free copy of this book was sent to me for review. I wrote about it, not for compensation, but strictly because I found it amusing and thought that you might too.


  1. What a fun concept for a book. I both love and hate the US elections. As a political junkie I enjoy the interesting debates and love following all the polls but as a Canadian I find them incredibly frustrating as there is nothing I can do about the outcome. This year I have kind of tuned them out as I just don’t know if I can handle the emotional investment. This book might be more my speed.

    • Even as a US voter, I don’t feel like I can do much about the election outcome, Kristine. How said is that? (Although I will certainly try.) Thankfully even political dogs are more likable than politicians. Maybe we should elect one.

  2. Thank you for the nice post, Kim!

  6. It seems that the haves get all the breaks but that is the
    case for a very small percentage of people. Children with
    a hearing impairment may already be quite effective at
    meeting their own communication needs through following other students and observing the action in a class.

    As such, its Continuing Education School sees nearly 22,000 learners each year in 160 programs that feature more than 1,
    200 courses and a 97 per cent learner satisfaction.
    The report was part of the annual surveys done to identify the nation. Apart
    from all the reasons that are jotted down here, speaking and understanding English all
    over India is one of the primary factor to make India a global educational destination. Applicants are required
    to have at least a graduate degree and a minimum of seven years.
    Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing.
    By supplementing your curriculum with current events and news stories outside the textbook, you can draw parallels between the distant experiences of the past and the world today.

  7. May I simply say what a relief to uncover a person that genuinely knows what they’re discussing on the web.
    You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    A lot more people really need to read this and understand this side of the
    story. I was surprised you aren’t more popular because you definitely possess
    the gift.
